Spinal Health Week 2016 runs from 23 to 29 May and this year the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (WA) is encouraging you to ‘Back Your Inner Athlete’.
With the Olympics around the corner, thousands of elite athletes are using health treatments like chiropractic care to perform at their peak. Chiropractors would like to remind people that everyone can back their own inner athlete and perform to their peak by reducing pain, improving posture and living a healthy lifestyle.
“Every day more and more Australians experience disabling low back pain, neck pain and headaches, limiting their ability to work and engage in an active healthy life,” said Dr Warren Genders Chiropractor and President of the CAAWA.
“Adopting healthy habits today, such as improving postural fitness, can significantly reduce the risk of injury or pain in later years. What’s more, good spinal health can benefit our self-esteem, social relationships and mental health.”
CAA Back App: Your Pocket Chiropractor. To help Back Your Inner Athlete, the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA) has developed a CAA Back App – the closest thing to having a chiropractor with you 24/7.
The CAA Back App will be released on 23 May, 2016. It can be downloaded free from www.backyourinnerathlete.com.au, Apple App Store or Google Play and is like your pocket chiropractor. As you go about your day, it sends subtle reminders about checking your posture, activity levels, water consumption and movement. Its state of the art ‘augmented reality’ feature animates when hovered over Spinal Health Week postcards, which are free from your local CAA Chiropractor. This shows users the correct posture they should maintain in everyday situations.
“We hope people enjoy using this interactive technology to improve their posture, which in turn can help improve their health”.
During Spinal Health Week 2016, make an appointment with a CAAWA member for a spinal health check-up and discover what steps you can take to improve your health and wellbeing and Back Your Inner Athlete.
